Earthquakes are measured by the Richter scale and demonstrated by the formula R = log(A) where A measures the amplitude of the earthquake wave and A, is the amplitude of the smallest detectable wave (or standard wave). An earthquake is measured with a wave amplitude 1800 times as great as a standard wave. What is the magnitude of this earthquake using the Richter scale? Round to the nearest tenth.
